Paula Decker Haynes replied to Marjorie Sloan's discussion What are your "selling" words?
"I definitely agree with this. I also engage the customers with the story behind the name and painting. It takes the pressure off of me and them and when you make the sale it is because they want it and the story behind it."

I did the St James Art Show this year and it did rain on Thursday nite before the show even started on Friday and when I came inside my booth it had rained inside the tent.

Arts on the Green, LaGrange, KY

I just completed a review on this show for which I have done twice now. I loved where this show was done. It is on the courthouse square which has a huge grassy area with nice walks all around so set up is nice with wide sidewalks for people to meander though the shows in mostly shaded area.

The hitch to all of this was that during setup of our booths on Friday all the walks around the outside were blocked with picnic tables and no one could use them to get access to their booth. This…
